The latest additions to the Senses Cultural team, Alexander Kwanje and Maryam Panjeh-Shahi, are contributing a short video called Living with Autism and are ready to work with our media team on our international projects.
Alexander was born to a South African father and an Iranian mother. He studied media and film production in The Tehran Art University. He is a film producer, a theatre actor and a sociologist. Alexander has an impressive body of work in the media and entertainment industry, both in Iran and the United States. He has produced his own movies both in Iran and he was chosen to work under direct supervision of one of Iran’s most prominent movie producers, the late Mr. Abbas Kiarostami (May he rest in peace).
Maryam is a versatile media expert with a diverse background. She studied Textile Engineering in Iran and moved to Washington DC about a decade ago to further her education. She majored in Business Management and Psychology at George Mason University and is currently pursuing a Master’s degree in Engineering Management. An entrepreneur, avid reader and traveler, Maryam is very conscious of current societal trends and sensitive about social injustices that occur daily and well alerted to pursue ways to change the stories.
Senses Cultural philanthropic endeavors are concentrated on art and information and we welcome these two young professionals and their contributions to our humanitarian projects.
